A few days back we showed you how to convert a PDF document to a Word file, but today we’ll try to show you how to convert your PDF file to any image format in few easy and simple steps. One method to convert your PDF document is through a web based tool and the other method requires you to download a free software utility that will do the job for you.

Here is how you can convert your documents, for your ease we have split the post into two sections

  • Using a Web based tool
  • Using a Freeware Software.

 

 USING A WEB BASED TOOL

Zamzar.com is a web based utility that lets you convert your PDF document to different image formats, and the image files will be sent to your specified email address, once they’re converted in just a short while. We are using this web based tool because its powerful and it does its job pretty well.

All you have to do is open up Zamzar.com in your browser.

USING A SOFTWARE TOOL

If for any reason you don’t want to use a web based tool for conversion, you can always use a software alternative. The software we will be using for conversion are OmniFormat V 8.3 and PDF995, both can be found on the same download page, First you have to install the PDF995 tool and thenl OmniFormat V 8.3.

NOTE: This software deletes the original file after conversion so whatever file you are adding to convert make sure you have a copy of it somewhere else in your hard drive!

 

So after adding the folder in which all your PDF files are placed, either you can place a single file in the WATCH folder or you can specify your own folder by ADD FOLDER button. Select the type of image you want your PDF file to be converted to.

After placing your file in the desired location all you have to do is to click on to the Start Monitoring tab, the software will search for PDF files in the folder, and then place the converted images in the same folder.
